I hope I don't get pulverized for this thread.
We all know there are a Erik/Christine and Raoul/Christine fans all over the place. However, there are a selected few of us who read between the lines and find that there are certain... special
relationships that most never consider.
I'm not talking about PhantomSlash, like Christine/Meg or Erik/Raoul or anything like that. I don't think anyone doubts the characters' sexualities.
I mean, what if Christine had never come to l'Opera Populaire? If you ask me, it is entirely possible that Erik could have fallen for Meg. Or, going back a generation, who IS Meg's father, anyway? Why does Mme Giry protect Erik so fiercely? I sense a secret love affair.
I'm one of those strange people who actually happens to be a fan of both Erik/Mme Giry and Erik/Meg, depending on the situation in each case. Anybody else a fan of an odd ship or two? :)
